ah, join us in the depths or remain in the shallows. ah, ah, i pass the message from joe biden. a head of talks with his russian counterpart through western liter, goes into overdrive with allegations of an imminent invasion of ukraine. or moscow says its nato, causing friction in the region. with europe in the grip of a winter of discontent, over soaring energy prices, a group brandishing fuel poverty warns of household hayton bills in the u. k. could soon double canadians stranded in south africa, say they feel abandoned by their government after all, to his new post only cron restrictions on returning a branded over complicated and confusing it really struck me that it is
2:01 am
citizens, really trying to help citizens. it's not the government trying to help citizens, and i think it really needs to be the other way around it. and vaccination cooperation is the only way to beat the pandemic. that's the warning coming from the president of the international federation of the red cross, as he spoke exclusively with arctic with mother. very good morning. thanks for joining me on our team. tonight. moscow has rebuffed claims that it is poised to invade ukraine, saying that they bear no relation to reality. adding it's the americans who are acting belligerently in the region. others, western media and politicians of rach, did up speculation about
2:02 am
a possible war with the u. s. and russian presidents such talk by phone on tuesday, joe biden seems in no mood to negotiate. yes, oh. of course, the diplomacy is out and red lines are there to be crossed when the big bad wolf is planning a land grab ring a bell. a similar warning came in the spring when russian troops gathered for snap training exercises. and again, when military drills were conducted in crimea, and only recently moscow was supposedly the mastermind of a qu, in key of remember the currency of no mean either because it didn't happen. in fact, none of the predictions came true, but this time apparently it's different. this time, it's the real deal, and to feed the fair, they're even drawing up the criminal battle plans the new year offensive. and for
2:03 am
the umpteenth time this year, russia is forced to defend the presence of its own troops on its own land. russia is not a threat to any country. the deployment of russian troops on the national territory is our sovereign roy and no one's business. it is nato on its members states a recklessly moving their military forces and infrastructure to the russian borders . so what is washes red line, us spy pains jetting towards rushes borders. passenger jets with hundreds of civilians on board, diverted because the nato re complain was too close and wouldn't respond to ground control. the actions by the u. s. air force created the threat to civilization and the fact that the catastrophe was averted over the backseat doesn't mean that the u . s. and nato can go on the risk in people's lives with impunity. the latest american war ship sailing into waters bordering russia. what issues was nature? you know, a u. s. warship has now entered the block. see,
2:04 am
we can see it through binoculars or the cross hairs of a defense system. shoot you a better one or multiple missile systems just across the face. it was a bit more to look at where nato's military infrastructure is located, just a short distance from our borders. in romania, poland, lansing, we saw defense systems have already been deployed and they can easily be converted into offensive missile systems that targets us. it only takes a matter of minutes to change the software. now, instinct tells me that if a russian destroy was spotted steaming into new york harbor, it would be a flaming red line for washington. but believe it or not for us all, this is a pink line at best. the real issue is nato, or rather, nato's expansion and expanded it has from this humble state in 1990 to this empire in 2020. now back in the day, russia was promised, nato would grow not one inch eastward of berlin. well, that's pullin so no,
2:05 am
it's not an inch. it's over a 1000 kilometers. and now it's knocking at russia's door. ukraine joining nato and we've been talking about it for a long time is a red line for us. the continual drawing of keys into the military orbit of the alliance, the de facto start of natives, assimilation of the military infrastructure of this country. and the desire to turn it into a foothold for confrontation with russia could all cause severe negative consequences and destabilize the military and political situation in europe. but lucky for nato, it's got a get out of jail free card because in politics, well promises are made to be broken. where is that? where is that written down? where is that from? was written down and under the religious friends among the garage girls that you didn't call which car one aspect marriage good. in the mean time the u. s. unfazed, by its terrible track record of predicting russian behavior is covering its bases and drawing up some economic sanctions. you know, just in case, after all,
2:06 am
nothing screams diplomacy more than getting your threats in a row before high stakes meeting. with the stroke of invasions that you're wondering what is really going on, you can check out the views of scott ritter on our website. the u. s. x intel officer is not buying any of it. she can find out why being so an article now we discuss the latest diplomatic spat with michael maloof, who's a former senior security policy analyst from the office of the you a secretary defense. he says, this is a case of double standards. i think that out by this constant harassment in the black sea in an area half way remove well from, from the united states and going right up against the borders of the russian federation. i think it really isn't aggressive move the exercise in the black sea area was in response to the failures and the expulsion of the united states from
2:07 am
afghanistan. so the united states has to show re assertiveness that it's still a leader in the so called free world. it lacks any recognition really out spheres of influence. just like if the russians were to come into the area of gulf of mexico tomorrow, you can believe that there would be a lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth in washington. the united states feels that it can do it to others, but it cannot be done to itself is part of that exceptionalism concept that the united states close to town around the world in a sort of bravado way. and it's getting tiring. brits could soon be having to pay double to heat their households according to you k fuel poverty monitor, which site supply and increase to the energy price cap coming next. april the cost of living in the u. k. is at its highest level in a decade with household energy bills, the biggest driver, when the costs of essential services go up. those on lowest incomes get hit.
2:08 am
hardest system it is. and 4000000 british households are currently behind on their energy bills. each went to 10000 deaths nationally caused by cold homes. the latest polling suggests half of the country is more worried even about the cost of heating than cove it. james anderson, founder of a company that provides emergency heating to the elderly, says the u. k. government is not doing enough to help those in fuel poverty. the fuel clay should the united kingdom is better because the usage is very high. the cost is very high width usage. people that have to pick which he think of the whole all put on the table, in my opinion, my honest opinion, the government, and not taking any steps at all to reduce you or who publicly within the united kingdom in the correct mama over in europe,
2:09 am
fears of fuel poverty have also grown with energy prices high and winter reducing the scope of green and the g government's dishing out today to help poorer homes as well as businesses. let me show the difference. he takes a closer look. has the bitter cold hits europe. everyone is doing their best to stay warm, but as natural gas prices are 5 times higher than they were a year ago, there is a real concern that states across the block could face shortages or even potential blackouts. many including luca here in paris face a winter full of difficult decisions. ciscano dish. oh no. yeah. and we have already received a reminder for the charges for heating once that's increased, while at the same time we have less heating. so myself and several tenants are really worried about the choices we will have to make. people are already having difficulty, so it's not easy. we feel
2:10 am
a little neglected. people living hand to mouth is worrying a, becoming more normal in some of you rips richest nations. but the bristles literally feel safe, we'll have to make choices. we will have to buy cheaper foods that are less nutritional math problems like that. people will lose their health. one, tens of millions of people in europe are already living in energy poverty. and there are fears that this figure is about to see a steep rise. europe's energy crisis has been building for months. now. governments across the block of try to put in place measures in an attempt to alleviate the strain on households. for example, here in france, the poorest households are to receive a one off payment of a 100 euros to help them shield. from those price rises, italy is put in place a 3000000000 euro aid package. while the spanish government has passed emergency
2:11 am
measures that redirects billions of years from the profit of energy companies to consumers in a bid to lower their bills. yet despite such measures, men here, they simply will not be enough. what is the structural problem in an achieve policies, shaping and policy making in many countries is who is really in charge. we have an interaction of various authorities, bodies. and on the other hand, we have seen various governments being very much occupied with stem cells. so there is an energy in my eyes, it's still not yet having to priority it should house throughout the e. u. member states are facing the same issue over various sources of energy, including natural gas. why? well, although the pandemic,
2:12 am
so large scale industry and even workplace is pretty much closing down when the locked downs were lifted, the demand short straight back up. and the companies just haven't been able to keep pace to add to that. but you is also trying to move towards renewable energy, such as wind power, yet low winds. in 2021 have meant that they've been less renewable energy being produced. these have always been the dates, bits, and of generate where experts have been warning against a possibility of even broke ability of a stance still in the world of renewables. photovoltaic and wind fox, the one that is now in a sort of come back is nuclear. and the i always say within the european union, not only that, we don't dispose of a common attitude policy. we don't even dispose of something like
2:13 am
a common energy mentality as may say. because that is a completely different attitudes to for instance, nuclear energy, l, east and west of the rhine, some e u countries, i'm the u. s. still opposing rushes, cleaned ignored stream to pulling blind saying it would make europe fall too reliant on russian gas. others that you say the link is vital so that people can hear homes at reasonable prices. such political games could end up pushing more people into fuel poverty this winter, and even cost them their lives. show the gbc oxy. paris. no canadians stranded in south africa struggling to make sense of the government's rules for returning home post only cross. we'll hear from some of them after the break. ah
2:14 am
ah ah ah mm oh, when i was showing wrong, when i just don't whole. i mean, you world yes to shape out these days because the advocate and engagement
2:15 am
equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look so common ground. oh take a look now some stories in brief from around the world starting in france where next year's election is already creating tensions. ah, these were the scenes of the 1st rally of right wing presidential hopeful erick zer, more is known for his anti immigration thieves. apparently anti racism activists managed to infiltrate his event. sir moore was making his way to the stage when a man charged them briefly putting him in a headlock where thousands of demonstrators march through the belgian capital to protest against anti cove and restrictions. right places, water cannon to disperse,
2:16 am
protest as some of who threw flies in response over the weekend though, a seminal rallies around europe, including in austria, france, levine. meanwhile, a local ethiopian community gather to protest in the lebanese capital of a route that was against the us interference in ethiopia, which has been gripped by conflict. the main rebel group, hiking the government is the to gray people's liberation front. the country which is under sanctioned by america were slam washington fractions. it says legitimize the separatist group, the canadian governments being accused of leaving its citizens in south africa in the lurch, without a clear way of making it back home. confusing rules have been imposed by elsewhere in the wake of the new on the convent. allowing flights only through one particular airport in frankfort, our correspondent in south africa, fall asleep exploits. dozens of canadians are stranded in south africa. after the
2:17 am
canadian government announced it would not accept the results of covert tests done in this country. the uproar led to a last minute change. now, if you book a flight to frankfurt and only frankfort, no other germans city and you arriving canada within 48 hours of leaving south africa, you'll be lit in confusing and stressful to say the least. we know you've now heard the bad news that you're not going to be able to board. the slate by a group of travelers was kicked off a flight at the last minute after they arrived at the airport. and we're waiting to board a plane out of the country. first came the announcement, the canadian citizens were only allowed to fly back to canada via ethiopia, where they would have to get out of the airport. go to a hotel, do a cobra test and wait for the results. but get this. ethiopia is on canada's no fly list because of the civil war they. ottaway is potentially prepaid to hom, its own citizens safety. rather than having to a co test in this country,
2:18 am
canadians are stranded in south africa. they're desperately trying to get assistance from this government. they're having to jump through hoops just to find in affordable p c r test or a safe flight back home. it really struck me that it is citizens, really trying to help citizens, citizens of south africa and marcus citizens of canada. it's not the government trying to help citizens. and i think it really needs to be the other way around. canada are saying, we trust south african scientists enough to block our own citizens from getting home and put so many different obstacles in place for them to get home. but at the same time, we don't have time to take them. so you can't be tested in south africa, and that makes absolutely no sense to me. when it goldman was in south africa with her husband, where she celebrated her father. when he was 90th birthday, she was one of the lucky few to get to frankfort when she spoke with us. while in
2:19 am
transit basic, you need to have it to africa. you just get on the flight to germany, then you need to, you know, in transit. they will be robbing toronto, we have a case, we then have to current teen in a hotel. and so we get back negative. if it's negative, we allowed to go home and have to currency for the full team days as well as get a taste on day. and even if it's negative, we still have to quarantine for 14 days. i just don't understand why they want to fix that problem. me, but then in place to maintain, it's actually causing chaos. in south africa, i've had a group of what we've been over like 2 weeks now to 100 people. and it was in a panic for those canadians currently here there's a massive scramble to swap tickets by new ones and get covert test results. no mean feat when south africa's covert figures are wising and the pasting seemed to cannot promise, they'll get results off quickly. options are running out for those canadians stuck
2:20 am
in the country as they try to navigate confusing travel rules. simply to get back home. policy a r t, johannesburg, south africa drawn note shoes. the ceo of south africa is largest private health insurance is the stance over testing and country groundless. our genetics screening all samples in south africa is outstanding of the best in the world. and hence, lead to this early detection of on the wrong. so, you know, failure to accept covered testing from south africa is confusing. it's a great sadness when politics interferes in science. and some of these are very distressing situation. for many people who are seeking to travel at this time of year punishing south africa this way by limiting travel and effectively imposing a lock down from external countries. really dis, incentivize this kind of behavior from around the world. so it really is difficult
2:21 am
to understand. failure to provide equal world wide access to vaccines could result in new coverage trans, emerging warning coming from the president of the red cross federation. you gave an exclusive interview to our team discussing not only the world covey but also the poland. valerie is michael crisis. he spoke with my colleague who and there was some county 9 european union. for example. we administer that though dosa. while in africa we sta, louisa raised that tisa temper sandy moodle need engrossed with 0 percent. so the something that says moral gas set of what we are ready to rule so far, we are ready to scale up our activities in africa by deity, the shoes about our did it, did the vaccine still have access to the vaccines? we have to put pressure on the pharmaceutical companies. there, you will be an union, the united states, u. k. we invested the b unsolved dollars,
2:22 am
sir ins researcher due to the dual to make this vaccine accessible. so why the boy discount in the developing counties that, that does not derive that to have access. i think these it should be a common gold, not something that said belong to the, to the, from a central young company. could they be in india, bellamy? i did it on them, it has been politicized to look at. they did, they did the level of the fake news or the day even political lisa had to spread. busy around the world. so this is something that unfortunate has been pretty decisive bukosa ye test to do with the fear of the people. it's up to the political leader to follow they, they advise is coming from their sanky community to least and not to them to war. read them to avoid, to do, to vote at the, on the same level. and he's also the media is an important responsibility. yes, and tv community and people the media and the governments are continuing to ring the alarm bells over this very end. but we're having the w h o. the chief
2:23 am
australian medical officer and the south african medical association saying don't panic. what do you say we should follow the. the advisors coming from the w had shaw and his and d. v. community saw dwarfed. and if we're needing a lead us and the government's out substituting a there this and given community in dealing with a call in 19 and and it is needed, realty made davy, then sat in terms of our over, ah, did, did, did the reason why we have these new, very answer. so we have cold, it would, you may be the incident that we'd outta i brought my vaccination without giving access to any human beings up to the vaccines, the risk of new varian, sir, lays age of very high aga, and we can not blame. also, these is another aspect of it for, as is at nissan of concern windata, we can not blame de, so deputy a scientist, a tool to hook for a heavy anger. i opened a door to the scientific community about these new discovery galaxy
2:24 am
i think was i was a good idea. unfortunately, it is not working as expected. so the number of distribution out of the vaccine swell go on. my callback, sir, is i ism, is not sole high aga and we, we expected much more ride themselves general. she from deeds of national community and day. and they had the idea that it was a good idea. he was due to give the priority and then some distribution baycove access to the medical doctors to the nazis that are working on the front line. and unfortunately it is working or less the 50 percent so far. so then i'm, they said very, very, very low and that is issa eyes and i did aspect of the, the national committee should take us easily in consideration. so we have to do more intensive distribution and giving access the better was fred crossley. this both with international federation. i think that the moment is dead . ballinger, i, i good job. of course does is none. not tommy time,
2:25 am
a long time solution i the area hosted in a sheltered area, but so far they are in a warm environment and, and we are engaging in attic discussion. we de mer men, the government of mendoza tool to find the other solution out for them and put on the unfortunately we don't have access said to the board to unfortunately, am not even andy's. i said he's on a full consent form. my says that i'm not super is about saudi european union now, and there was discount re i do, i reacting guy in dealing with the human beings. disease and i'm wondering if we are losing got about humanity because he's not about every county has the right to set up policies for migrations. we. i'm not questioning it some outside the humanity on which we have to, to treat every human beings. this is the only point that we are racing. and i wrap it up for this news hour. i hope you enjoy me in 30 minutes. i'll be back with updates. say that ah
2:26 am
ah. join me every thursday on the alex salmon. sure. but i'll be speaking to guess what the world politics, sport business, i'm sure business. i'll see you then what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy even foundation, let it be an arms race group is on often very dramatic development. only personally
2:27 am
and getting to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very difficult time time to sit down and talk with back breaking, toil, forced labor stress, industrial injury. corporal punishment.
2:28 am
oh no. words with which we're all familiar. are you certain that the world you live in abolish slavery long ago? with a ah,
2:29 am
i'm ashen retents and you're watching a special edition of going underground on this day 156 years ago. the end of legal slavery was ratified by the u. s. congress through the 13th amendment, however, the global power and economic system remains shackle to a racist colonial logic. axiomatic linked to the so called enlightenment which fostered genocide so argues professor can and andrew's author of the new age of empire. now, racism and colonialism still rule the world. he joins me now from the infamous slave town of birmingham in england. thank you so much, a professor andrews for coming on the show. before i get to how you begin this book, with the amazement of a b, b, c, news night presenter emily make lists of famous for reduce interviewing prince andrew actually or amazement about what you said about the enlightenment. i better just ask you a quick be about barbados, which you, you delineate the genocide there of the argo people in this new book that you say,
2:30 am
her majesty may be the premier symbol of whiteness on the planet. barbados, of course, was just became a republic. why. ready obviously, barbados have been independent over 50 years, and the idea that you still get this is queen lucy is the primary. and what of why supremacy in the world, right? the british empire, those links, and what that means to a place like barbados, which was britain's 1st lay colony. i really think just not really news it should have been a long time ago. the real question is why, why do we still have the queen? is that a state a place like jamaica in my family's from of the commonwealth? i mean, it is just a bad time that this, that this money, he was removed from countries like barbados. i would say for me and of course prince charles, we add to the throne, did acknowledge the argument. some of the arguments in this book is so. so are we acknowledge you is a nice way to put it, i guess. but i mean, even if the princess was there, i mean, i think sometimes we may, is good that barbados is got rid of the queen is out of state. does that mean that
2:31 am
barbados is, is a fully independent country that can on his own economy.
